If wishes were horses, beggars would have to take a lot of horse riding lessons

This morning walking to school, Z said, "I wish I could just snap my fingers and all the kids would go back home and there wouldn't be any school today."

Me: Go ahead and try it.

Z: I can't snap my fingers.

This is a definite disadvantage for snap-based wishes and for detectives who have suddenly had an insight.
